[ RadSafe ] Tons of radioactive wood pellets...

There are two potential hazards:  (1) airborne Cs-137 when the wood is burned, and (2) Cs-137 in the ashes.  The combustion process could concentrate the Cs in the ash.

My main concern, however, is the source of the contamination.  It indicates a loss of control somewhere, which could lead to more serious consequences.  If a nuclear facility released the contaminated pallets, what else are they releasing?
