On 2020, the city of Tokyo in Japan will host the world’s largest multi-sport event: the Olympics and Paralympic 2020.

The biggest, once in a four-year sports event will bring together representatives of countries from all over the world to compete for medals in every branch of sport.

What’s unique is Japan as the host made medals from the recycling electronic waste which weighed a total of 78,000 tons.

Tokyo 2020 Olympics

The electronic waste variety consists of various kinds of devices such as laptops, handhelds, including 6.21 million used cellphones provided by the NTT Docomo chain of stores throughout the Cherry Blossom Country.

From processing around seventy thousand tons of waste, the organizing committee managed to collect 32kg gold, 3,500kg silver, and 2,200kg bronze.

This amount is enough to make 5,000 gold, silver and bronze medals to be worn around the neck of the Olympic and Paralympics champions of Tokyo 2020 Olympics.

Examples of medals from millions of recycled cellphones can be seen in the picture above, as compiled by KompasTekno from Engadget, Thursday (07/25/2019).

On one side, the Olympic logo reads “Tokyo 2020”, while on the other hand, Goddess Nike is taken from Greek mythology.

Electronic waste collection for the Olympic Games and Tokyo Paralympics lasted almost two years from April 2017 to March 2019.
The local residents contributed by providing used electronic devices through a number of collection posts that were deliberately distributed throughout Japan.
