Default Automotive AC Work

I'm thinking of tackling replacing my AC Compressor myself in the C5 Vette. Does anyone have the equipment or would be willing to help with me recovering the refrigerant in my car? I prefer not to pollute, but most places won't do it for the common guy.

when I did mine, I just got a cheap vacumn pump and a set of ac gauges from Harbor Freight.. Of course you should have your system evacuated prior to opening it up. make sure your new compressor has oil in it and also replace your dryer..... never did a Vette, so not sure how hard it would be to access it..
