Satellite Dishes

Alternative ways to recycle

Satellite dishes are e-waste that can be disposed of through the County Household Hazardous Waste Program.

Trash Bin

Never Throw in the Trash

All electronics contain hazardous waste. Don’t throw them away because they can leach toxic chemicals into the environment.

Consider Professional Removal

Satellite dishes are often mounted in locations that are hard to access. If you can’t safely remove the dish from the roof yourself, hire a professional to do it.

Alternative Ways to Recycle


Return to the Service Provider

Contact the provider for your satellite dish to see if they have a refurbishing or recycling program for their equipment. DISH and DIRECTV are two providers that offer (limited) recycling programs.
