The recycled metal has been collected from the Japanese public as well as businesses and industry.
The Tokyo Organising Committee said Friday that the goal of collecting over 30kg of gold has been nearly completed, with the necessary amount of precious metals expected to be gathered by the end of March. After collecting more than 48,000 tons of e-waste, the target for bronze has been met, while the country has 85.4 percent of the silver and 93.7 percent of the gold necessary.
Collection centers were set up across 1,594 municipalities, where around 47,488 tons of discarded gadgetry were dumped as of November previous year.
All Olympic and Paralympic medals can be made from devices already donated, the committee is estimating, with nationwide collection scheduled to stop on 31 March. For instance, the committee collected 2,700 kg of bronze, 28.4 kg of gold and 4,100 kg of silver required for the medals from the e-waste. At the Rio Olympics in 2016, recycled metals were used for medals but for less than 30 per cent of gold and silver.
