Parts from fridges, microwaves, computers and mobile phones are all set to be used. Meanwhile, the Tokyo Task Force also discussed whether the Olympic Stadium, which will be designed by Kengo Kuma, can utilise recycled materials.
Recycled medals will be awarded to every athlete who reaches the podium in 2020 to fit in with the International Olympic Committee's (IOC) sustainability goals. Organisers are hoping to collect eight tonnes of metal - 40 kilograms of gold, 4,290kg of silver and 2,944kg of bronze.
Following the popular ‘reduce, reuse, recycle’ phrase, the end result was a neat, lightweight stadium made from materials that were either recyclable or recycled. The roof support for instance, was constructed using 2,500 tons of steel tubing from recycled gas pipelines [iv].

BOFP, built for 2008 Beijing Olympics games, is a large, man-made nature park at the north-end of the Olympic Green. Recycled water is used as the main source of surface water in BOFP. The positions of sampling sites characteristics are given in Fig. 1. A total of ten sites (sites 110) were sampled from the two parts on November 11, 2011, March 14, May 14, and July 12, 2012, as four different seasons, respectively.
The ODA specified at the outset that 25% by weight of all materials used on the Olympic Park venues and infrastructure should be recycled or secondary products. We have supported the ODA and the Olympic Park contractors in a number of ways to achieve this challenging objective.

The Olympic park was built on top of a grassed-over mountain of WWII rubble that became home, in intervening decades, to refugee camps and the U.S. Military. A weblike “tensile” structure covers much of the park, which contains the Olympic Stadium, the indoor Olympic Hall and a host of other sporting venues.
The stadium’s recycled materials included an unused gas pipe from a North Sea oil project, while approximately 40% of the concrete used was made of recycled aggregate. LOCOG also saved energy by transporting materials to the site by boat or train.
