How much money can you make for recycling cans in Southern Illinois?

My friends and I want to recycle soda cans to make money and we want to know how much we can make. We’ve heard 70 cents a pound, but I’ve also hear of 5 cents a can which is twice as much. We would also like to know if we can make money off of 2 liter soda bottles.

Check with the recycling facilities near you. Usually, it’s the private recycling facilities that compensate people for the recyclables they bring in.
