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?
It's not about dose, it's about trust.
