How to switch from one years compost heap to the next?

coll | Mar 25, 201306:05 PM     12

I am probably asking a silly question, but....my spinning bin is full, and has been for months. Time to unload and cover my raised garden beds, after removing the whole leaves placed there last year after Hurricane Sandy. There is some recent stuff in there that is still basically whole and I assume I should pick out....I added some goat/horse/chicken manure in the fall to plump it up and hoping overall it will be decent.

So how do you switch over to next years batch, or do you? To me, I'm thinking this is a once a year thing, or something like that?
