Recycled Clay Body Tile
Fireclay Tile’s recycled clay body tile is made from a mixture of clay, post-consumer glass and porcelain, and granite dust. The inclusion of post-consumer recycled porcelain, that was fired in its initial production, results in less shrinkage of the new product, as shrinkage occurred during the material's initial firing. Fireclay’s recycled clay body tile features over 70% recycled materials with the addition of landfill-bound recycled porcelain, including over 50% post-consumer recycled materials from San Francisco and San Jose city recyclers; thereby preventing over 150 tons of porcelain waste from entering landfills.
Ceramic tiles are difficult to remove for reuse without damage, but occasionally can be recycled at ceramic recycling facilities, such as Fireclay Tile.
