a serious compost facility should incorporate a runoff pond, perhaps centrall located, to collect the leachate, and a diesel irrigation pump or maybe PTO tank sprayer with a water cannon.  if you cant turn your stuff you can at least hose it down which will set the temps back and slow the high temp bacteria strains that are a fire hazard.  the pond with a liner will go a long way to quiet any cries of fire risk, of watershed pollution and so on.  and its valuable leachate.  spray it back onto the new piles to innoculate.

Kindling was a really nice way to do business and people loved buying it.  Seems like everyone has gone to a propane torch for getting the fire started these days... you don't see much of it anymore.

Wood chips would be the best path, sell them for dirt cheap and people will use them for bedding, trail cover, filling in swampy holes... the use is endless.  Saw dust I would use for composting, great stuff!
