Does anybody know how much money we get if we recycle aluminum cans or water bottles?

I currently live in California

I've heard that we can get 5 cents per can and like 10 cents per bottle?

Can I get like the exact cost of each bottle/can?

    i cant give you the exact price, but its more then 5 cents a can. cashing in cans is pretty good money in california. in oregon... not so much. i used to pull over 100$ for 5 bags of cans in cali. which is amazing considering i was drinking shashta cola which is ******* cheap anyway. also, it has to do with weight not amount. where i cashed them in anyway.

    I took six bags of cans down to the place near Girard, Ohio...I got about $5.35 for them all. Then I saw a disabled woman on an electric wheelchair collecting cans on recycle day. I give them all to her from now on.
