How it can be done in Bermuda:
The Marsh Folly Composting Facility is used as a commercial composting facility where horticultural waste and food scraps from restaurants and cruise ships are composted.  Organic waste is formed into rows of long piles called "windrows" and aerated by turning the pile periodically by either manual or mechanical means.  The ideal pile height, which is between 4 and 8 feet, allows for a pile large enough to generate sufficient heat and maintain temperatures, yet small enough to allow oxygen to flow to the windrow's core.  The ideal pile width is between 14 and 16 feet.   The end product is a soil amendment that has been used to restore the Marsh Folly site and that is also available to the public for horticultural practices.
