The EPA enforces environmental laws in the US. They regulate waste streams, waste generators, waste haulers, and waste disposal sites. Anytime you see a trash truck, a power plant, or a factory, they must have a registration with the EPA. EPA regulations even extend to the manufacturing of your car.

They do not directly charge the public for what they do, as a government agency they operate off of tax money so the public indirectly pays for their operations. They also have the power to levy fines for violations.

    The EPA (Environmental Protection agency) monitors any and all activities that involve interaction with the environment.
    They operate in all 50 states. They also co-ordinate with Canada and Mexico regarding shared environments.
    They do not charge the public for what they do, however they are funded by tax dollars as well as the fines they levy on offenders.
    They help the environment by making sure industrial and other waste is treated and disposed of in a manner that is safe not only for the environment but for people as well.
    For example; the EPA is responsible for making and enforcing guidelines for disposal of used oil, batteries, and chemically tainted water from manufacturing facilities. They are also involved in monitoring and cleaning up oil spills that occur in US waters. They also monitor air quality in all major cities and pursue those who pollute too much or who regularily deal with toxic chemicals. For more info go to wikipedia or http://www.epa.gov
