    you can recycle plastic waterbottles too. you would have to find a local recycling center near you and ask them. surf online and find out where you can take them and how much. it depends on what state you live in. not all states believe in participating. but i know for sure california does. you get 5 cents a water bottle there but i dont know about aluminum cans. you will have to ask your local recycling center.

    It depends where you live; different cities/states have different values.

    In California, the CRV is 5 cents for containers less than 24 ounces, and 10 cents for containers 24 ounces and larger. Plus, some places only do it by weight.

    If your in a state with no deposit - I hope you have a huge truck to collect cans in! Fill a U-Haul truck full and you might get enough to pay for your gas and a hambuger at McDonalds

    Depends on what state you are. It is usually about 5 cents. This kind of occupation is too low for my blood. Save it for the 'special people' sorting out the recycleables. It is good though, it gives them something to do and contribute to society.
