Can you return them? What kind of materials are you talking about?
Did a job for target and have a few 3 pole 20 amp breakers. They mailed them to me and I dont know were they got them but there like $100 apiece

Even with the restocking charge, I try to return anything oddball or large quantities to the supply house. If there's a reasonable chance I'll use it, I'll keep it. I've never really had an issue with having material that I have no idea where it came from. If I was in that position, I'd leaf through The Electrical Advertiser magazine and call someone. That whole (free) magazine is chock full of surplus buyers. I doubt you'll get 5 bucks a piece for these breakers, though. Even new, a lot of places don't fool around with small MCCB's unless you have a butt ton of them NIB.

Excess material heads right to the shop to be either pieced out on smaller jobs or used up by the service crews. It never goes to waste.

Just added in a new 600 volt panel and three 120/208 panels at a local high school and I didn't have to buy one breaker.
