I am in the final days of my due diligence period to buy a property that is a mile or two the American Proteins rendering plant and it has recently come to my attention that there is a strong odor that can be smelled in the area. I have not personally smelled the odor myself but I am concerned that it will impact our enjoyment and use of the property.

For those of you who live in that area, can you please tell me how often you smell the odor, how long the odor usually persists and about how far away from the plant you are. I learned that they operate 24 hours a day, 5 or usually 6 days a week and are busiest when the chicken plants are busiest but apart from that, I'm trying to determine how much the odor will likely require windows to be closed and outdoor dining to be moved indoors and things like that. Also if there are certain weather conditions that make the odor more noticeable.

Having made the mistake of buying a property close to a sewage treatment plant before, I really try to do my homework when it comes to odors. Thanks for your insight.

MaxX, it is now 3/21/15 a year and half since you asked the question above. I am looking at building about 2 miles east of the American Proteins plant and like you asked in 2013, I have the exact same concerns. Did you ever get any answers to this question? If so, what were they. Also, did you end up buying the property? If so, what has the air been like?

Thank you in advance for answering this comment.

I couldn't even drive past the stinking place. By now, you've either bought the property or decided against it, but that stench will always be there.

The owner of this plant has spent VAST amounts of money on containing this smell. It smells very little now compared to ten or fifteen years ago. You shouldn't have too much difficulty in getting used to this new odor. You can sometimes smell this plant on Ga. 400 as well, but most just ignore it.
