I, too, have no experience here - but my gut feeling says less than a hundred
yards (or metres). (Provided its not covered in snow) why not get 
environmentally friendly; tell some kids you'll give them ten cents (or 
whatever is the going rate) for every item of metallic rubbish they find in 
that direction/area. (Get the neighbours to sponsor other directions.)
