Warren Catoe, who just moved to Springfield from South Carolina, said he tries to recycle whenever possible.

“I’d much rather have it in a recycling center,” Cato said, “than have it sitting out somewhere to become an eyesore.” says he's been impressed by Missouri's landscape and wants to keep it beautiful.

Even though it's the season of Christmas tree recycling people are doing more to take advantage of the weather.    

This welcome relief from bone chilling temps allowed Greg Bowser to get extra work done.

"I've been renovating a house and I've mostly been working inside but because it was so nice today,” Bowser said. “I decided to cut some branches and trim up some trees and haul it down here to the tree dump."

Bowser said because it is nearly January Missouri he knows the interior won't go untouched for long.

"I hear it's supposed to be cold and nasty again the next couple of days,” he said.
