Sending waste to the landfill is, well, a waste, so the manufacturer uses locally sourced recycled materials to produce its Debris series of tiles. The products are made using baghouse dust collected from local glass recyclers, granite dust from a quarry, and the spent abrasives from water pipe cleaning. Tiles contain more than 62 percent recycled content and come in 112 colors. Fireclay Tile, 408.275.1182; www.fireclaytile.com.
