Remodel Filter: Looking for scrap granite / mica countertops for some home remodel projects - or how to go about begging for them.

I've watched shows on TLC, HGTV, etc. where they've been able to score scrap granite pieces leftover from larger jobs at countertop companies to use for countertops on patios, garages, etc buying pre-fabbed cabinets from places like Lowes or Home Depot and then attaching these scrap pieces. In most cases it looks like the scrap is actually cut as well it just was 'too long' or 'leftover' from a larger piece.
Does anyone have any experience on how to score such pieces? I'm not even sure where to start. Google turns up nothing, as well as AskMeFi searching.
I'm in Austin, TX if that's helpful
