I am composting kitchen waste from a small cafe/restaurant, using two piles, each 1800mm (6ft) square and maximum 900mm (3ft) deep when full. Using the Humanure method, but without adding any humanure, just the food waste. Chicken bones, other meat bones, dairy, etc. are included. Each bin takes about 6 months to fill and is then closed off, by which time the other resting bin has matured into fantastic dark compost.
Temperature is normally 65 Celsius very quickly after each addition and occasionally 70. Because hay and straw is a bit scarce this season, and therefore expensive, I have started layering mulch (chipped tree toppings from the local Council and other contractors) instead of the hay...this mostly in the summer months, but even in the winter the pile temperature is keeping up and it continues to make good compost. (Our winters are no where near as extreme as happens in Philadelphia.)
Will post a photo when available. The system is just so good and simple.
