A type of energy that comes from natural sources, such as the wind, sun or water. Some of the most common types of renewable energy include solar energy, hydroelectric power and hydrogen.

The environment continues to provide the sources of energy like these, ensuring there will always be plenty of resources to go around.
A process used to level land surfaces for paving, restore current roads to original driving surface or provide necessary drainage for roadways. The procedure for road grading involves the use of heavy machinery, including a motor grader that removes potholes and other road depressions by filling them with appropriate material before paving.

Special containers, often waste receptacles, designed to be rolled on and off of transport vehicles. The containers come in a wide range of shapes and sizes, but are typically too large and heavy to be transported through other means.

A permit is usually required to have a roll-off container at your home or business.
