CROSSVILLE, TN -- Crossville Inc., a domestic porcelain tile manufacturer based in Crossville, TN, has diverted a total of 24 million pounds of porcelain from landfills since launching its Tile Take-Back® program and Toto USA recycling partnership. Both initiatives are based on Crossville's proprietary process for recycling fired porcelain products, including post-consumer materials.

Between both Tile Take-Back® and the Toto USA partnership, Crossville achieved the following in 2012:

  • recycled more than 5,550,354 pounds of fired tile produced at the company's plants that would have previously gone to landfills
  • received and processed more than 60,560 pounds of tile, including scraps and post-consumer tile extracted from renovation projects and
  • received and recycled more than 6,669,834 million pounds of scrap porcelain from Toto.

Since the launch of Tile Take-Back® in 2009, the company's cumulative recycling totals include:

  • more than 10 million pounds of fired tile produced at Crossville's plants
  • 220,000 pounds of scrap and post-consumer tile
  • 13.7 million pounds of scrap porcelain from Toto USA.

Tile Take-Back and the Toto USA partnership are just two of many sustainable practices Crossville maintains companywide. For more information about all such practices, visit:
