Depends on where you live and what the price is, for example in South Australia(SA) you can get 10 cents per bottle/can, therefore if you pick up enough you could probably make a basic living. I don't know what the price is where you live, but there are some homeless people in the cities who collect bottles and cans, to occasionally get a proper meal. at 10 cents per can though, you need to pick up 100 bottles/cans to collect just $10.

I live near a college- can pick up a couple hundred cans per week per mile along the road. One guy in town quit his job as a chief engineer for Exxon to pick up cans. He also was screwing his ex over who managed to get 75% of everything he made in court...
