Guess the Granite Contest!
This year at the SAHBA 2015 Spring Home Show we presented visitors with a challenge… Guess how many pounds of A & E Recycled Granite products we featured in our booth — and we had it everywhere! From the beautiful Paver floor, to the prominent Split Stone Fireplace all the way down to our granite business card holders. Some found the game overwhelming, others enjoyed calculating and many grabbed a friend to get their opinion! However they guessed, it was amazing to watch our guests walk around the display, exploring all the ways we use granite waste.
Waste?! — Let’s talk a little bit about that. A & E Recycled Granite works with many countertop fabricators and diverts their scrap from our local landfills. Pieces like sink cut-outs and side cut-offs (that would normally end up in the dump) we pick-up and recycle into useable granite building materials. All of the products that we manufacture are solid granite, we don’t crush and reform them with any type of chemical. We manufacture Pavers, Split Stone Tiles, Fire Pits and even use our remnants to create Wine Stoppers, Jewelry and so much more!
Last year A & E Recycled Granite diverted well over 200 Tons of granite scrap from the Tucson and Phoenix landfills. Our booth, with its staggering amount of products, represented an average week of waste from one fabricator. That’s a lot of granite sitting in our landfills. So… how much did the granite in our booth weigh???
Our winner (and we remember him) was in our booth about 30 minutes, calculating and walking around looking at our products. He amazingly came within 12 pounds from the amount…
With an entry of 6,397 pounds our winner is:
Congratulations from everyone at A & E Recycled Granite!
