Abstract: The Lami dump, which is the depository for almost all of Suva's domestic and industrial wastes, has been suggested by researchers to be a significant source of contamination in the harbour area. There is lack of conclusive data to verify this suggestion which prompted this study. It was designed to determine the extent of contamination at the dump and investigate the possibility of remediating any contamination that could be found using the concept of an emerging new technology — phytoremediation.
