Getting deposit back from old Oyster cards

I've searched the internet looking for an answer to my question and there is tons of general info to be found, but it doesnt answer my particular question...

Over the last few years I've gone through a few Oyster cards, which most of the time I registered in my oyster account. Every once in a while, a card stopped working, so I'd get a new one, use the option in the account to cancel the old one, transferring the balance to a new card. After a while I realised I wasn't getting the £5 oyster card deposit back!

So now to my specific question: I have 2 oyster cards registered in my account, with £0 balance. But they both have a deposit of £5 each on them. I don't have the physical cards anymore - how can I cancel them in a way that returns my deposit?
