Environmental science and protection technicians perform laboratory and field tests to monitor environmental resources and determine the contaminants and sources of pollution in the environment.

They may collect samples for testing or be involved in abating and controlling sources of environmental pollution.

Some are responsible for waste management operations, control and management of hazardous materials inventory, or general activities involving regulatory compliance.

Many environmental science technicians employed at private consulting firms work directly under the supervision of an environmental scientist.
