No matter how well purchasing and production cycles are planned, some companies will end up with excess, unneeded packaging inventory. 


For 60 years, McKernan Packaging Clearing House has helped businesses recoup their costs associated with surplus inventory by purchasing unused and unbranded packaging components.


There are many reasons why excess inventory happens. Product demand can decline, packaging changes, design changes, or simply the product or packaging has become unneeded. The problem with this excess inventory is that it can reduce profit margins by taking up valuable warehouse space and create extra overhead costs associated with storing and maintaining the obsolete packaging.


So what can be done with this excess packaging inventory?  Throwing it away or dumping it in a landfill can be costly and have a negative environmental impact. Plus, the decision to dump the inventory without trying to regain some of your initial investment is a difficult decision to make. Recycling is another option that might recoup some cost, but McKernan typically pays more than recycle value.


McKernan can offer you cash for your unbranded/unused, surplus packaging such as:

Plastic Bottles • Metal Bottles • Glass Bottles • Jars • Tubes • Aerosol Cans • Caps • Container Lids • Continuous Thread Caps • Dispensing Caps • Metal Caps • Overcaps • Sprayers • Crimp Sprayers • Fine Mist Sprayers • Garden Sprayers • Regular Mist Sprayers • Triggers • Pumps • Tins and so much more!



When you need to clear inventory, call McKernan at 1-800-SURPLUS where we will pay cash for your surplus inventory. Plus, when you accept our offer, we will coordinate the shipping and pay all freight costs to move them out of your warehouse!


The process is simple; you can receive an offer within 24 hours after receiving your samples.
