The present work focuses on the use of Lumbricus rubellus to remediate leachate-contaminated soil containing heavy metals such as Cu, Mn, Pb, Fe, Cr, Ni, Zn, and As. Three types of treatment were carried out consisting of spent mushroom compost and organic soil in a 2:1 ratio (T1), cow dung and organic soil in a 2:1 ratio (T2), and organic soil (T3) with 30 clitelated earthworms in the respective treatments. The vermiremediation took 90 days to complete. At the end of the experiment, T1… Expand
