Cliff-notes answer- it's not really a DIY.
Long answer-
You can't just open the valve and vent it to the atmosphere. It's supposed to be pumped out at a shop using a machine that stores and recycles the refrigerant, after it's pumped out the system needs to be sucked down into vaccum. It shouldn't be left discharged for any significant time since moisture can get into the system and contaminate the internal components. If it is open or discharged for a long time, or if moisture is likely to have gotten in, the receiver-drier has to be replaced before the system is recharged.
