Individuals are not being prohibited from hiring contractors and cleaning their own lots but the ash must be tested before it can be disposed of, and when the job is done there should be an official certification that the lot is clean of toxics. If they register with the LAC each site will be left clean, with erosion protection for the winter and ready to build again.
