  MR Credit 3: Materials Reuse

Inherent durability and artistic potential allow tile products to be used more than once in their lifetime. Once removed from a previous installation, tile can be salvaged and re-bonded in a new installation for flooring and wall covering purposes, in countertops, furniture, and in decorative mosaic accent pieces. All of these uses can contribute to the overall building material reuse targets of 5% (1 point) or 10% (2 points) to satisfy LEED® MR Credit 3.
