We Buy All Manufacturing Scrap

Do you generate scrap metal from machining or other subtractive manufacturing processes? Or have large quantities of defective production parts? Do you have decommissioned on-site equipment and machinery that needs removal from your facility?

NowRush is a full-service scrap metal buyer. We provide manufacturers across New Hampshire, Massachusetts and southern Maine a full range of roll-off containers for metal collection and convenient pick-ups. Available in 15-yard, 20-yard, 30-yard and 40-yard sizes, we’ll drop off the container to best handle the type and quantity of your material, place it in a convenient location and return to pick it up when it’s full.

Benefits of Recycling Metal

Recycling metals not only saves energy and precious natural resources, but it creates jobs, lowers the trade deficit and helps consumers earn money.


The burden on natural resources is drastically decreased when we recycle scrap metal. Recycling one ton of steel conserves 2,500 pounds of iron ore, 1,400 pounds of coal and 120 pounds of limestone.

Energy Conservation

The process of recycling metal uses less energy than making brand new metal. This cuts down on greenhouse gas emissions and allocates energy for other purposes, like heating and lighting our homes.


U.S. trade balances get a boost from scrap metals. Plus, the industry supports hundreds of thousands of jobs, with numbers growing every year, and many high-skill jobs in science and engineering.


Consumers can get paid for scrap metal. Depending on the type and amount of metal you have to recycle, your scrap metal heaps may equate to hundreds or even thousands of dollars in extra cash.
