Nobody will want a LNB back. You could recycle it just like any other old electronics, through your town/county/civic group. How many LNBs are you talking about, anyway?

House #1:
HR20-700 -> LG 42LH40 LCD (HDMI)
HR23-700, AM21N -> Slingbox Solo (component)
and AverTV HD DVR C027 card on Lenovo desktop (HDMI)
HR23-700, AM21 -> Samsung HL-R4266W (HDMI)
AU9 SWM5

House #2:
HR34-700 ->
Insignia NS-55L260A13 Rev E (HDMI)
C31-700 -> Sansui SLED1980E (HDMI)
AU9 SWM5

More details are available here.

Our warehouse boxes them up and ships them off for recycling. That is if the techs actually return them. Most end up in the dumpster.

These are non-working LNB's from service swaps and DOA's. They get paid to recycle them no doubt.
