Crossville’s Waste Recycling Processes Are Certified

Crossville, Inc.Crossville, Inc. has become the first tile manufacturer in the U.S. to achieve certification of its waste recycling programs through Scientific Certification Systems (SCS), an independent, third-party certifier of recycling claims.

SCS has verified that Crossville annually recycles approximately 12 million pounds of previously land-filled filtrate, fired tile, and pre-consumer sanitary ware. Much of this material comes from TOTO, a manufacturer of sustainable, luxury plumbing products.

This has enabled Crossville to become a net consumer of waste, consuming more manufacturing waste than it generates, as well as conserving resources; the volume of finished goods Crossville ships now exceeds the amount of raw materials it extracts from the earth for use in manufacturing. All Crossville products will now contain a minimum of four percent recycled content from TOTO, in addition to varying percentages of its own filtrate and fired waste.
