NEW SEED CLEANING PLANT PROJECT
The Camrose County Seed Cleaning Plant has been in operation at the same site since 1947. Although many upgrades have occurred over the years the plant is showing its age, and the site is not ideal for today's large grain trucks. The demands have been exceeding the capacity of the plant over the last few years.
Camrose County is pleased to announce that a new seed cleaning plant is now underway! The plant will be located at the Millang Industrial Subdivision just east of Camrose on land owned by Camrose County. The site will have improved access and increased capacity.
The Seed Cleaning Plan is operationally self-supporting (no tax dollars used) and has contributed surplus monies to a Seed Cleaning Plan Reserve that will be used to cover some of the costs of the construction. A debenture will cover the rest of the costs. The new plant will take advantage of advanced equipment and processes. Site work began in the fall of 2020, and construction is currently ongoing. The site is expected to be operational in late 2022.
