Return of Sattelite Dish - DirecTV

I recently cancelled my service and was informed by one of your reps that I own the satellite dish and Direct TV does not want it back. This is bizarre to me that this equipment can not be recycled. If this is the case, what suggested measures should I take to dispose of it? Not even certain how to remove it from the rooftop. You installed it; you should remove it.

This question, "Return of Sattelite Dish," is about DirecTV channels, programming, equipment, and sports.
