DirecTV customers can call customer service and have a return kit sent to them with a prepaid return label. They can also go online an and request a return kit. You will need to ensure that the serial numbers on all your equipment match with what's registered to your account. If not, let a DirecTV representative know. Once you receive your return kit, box the equipment you want to return. You can take your boxed equipment with your prepaid return label to the post office or have the postman pick it up. Customers may also have the option of dropping their equipment at a return location. However, customers will need to speak with customer service regarding how to return, re-purpose, or reuse their Dish. If you own your Dish you may be able to recycle it but you will need to speak with customer service regarding how to do that.

Customers also have the option of going online to start the return process. You can request a return kit with a prepaid label and box up your equipment and take it to the post office or have the postman pick it up from your home. You will need your account number and the serial number on your equipment to make sure that you're returning the right piece of equipment.

Your Dish

You'll need to contact customer service to determine what to do with your dish. If you own your dish outright you may consider recycling it. Ask for instructions on how to do this when you call customer service. If you don't own your dish you'll need to get instructions regarding what will happen with your dish. Never throw it away or sell it without asking, particularly if you don't own it outright. You may be subject to several fines if you do so, perhaps the cost of the dish as well. A DirecTV representative will help you to determine the best way to handle getting rid of your Dish.
