50% Recycled Content (Pre-Consumer)
The production of our extruded quarry tile creates a waste product that cannot be added, in large volume, to our existing colors. Other manufacturing processes create waste products including fired scrap. Through additional blending and processing of large quantities of these products and then blending it further, with new material, we are now able to offer a product with a pre-consumer* recycled content of over 50%. ENVIROQUARRY® meets the same tough standards as our regular quarry products and is kiln flashed for random color variation and added appeal.
Metropolitan Ceramics® is pleased to bring to market a product that performs so well and has the potential to divert hundreds of tons of material from the waste stream.
*Pre-consumer recycled material is a waste product of a manufacturing process, diverted from the waste stream and not normally used by industry during the original manufacturing process.
