Why public service?

Working for Ecology means working for the people of Washington. It’s a different environment than most private sector jobs. We’re not here to make a profit, we’re not out to crush the competition, and we can’t succeed as an organization unless we make Washington a better place to live, work, and raise a family.

People who work for Ecology tell us that spirit of service means something more than just a paycheck. And it extends to everyone at our agency, whether you’re getting your boots muddy cleaning up an oil spill, developing new policies to fight climate change, or supporting our staff in payroll or human resources. Working in public service means knowing that your work matters.
