Today, you need a licensed pro with recovery equipment. The days of 'lettin it fly' are over.

If you can, keep the unit and bring it to a junk yard if you have one near by. You won't get rich but you can make a few bucks on the copper etc in the unit. Mind you, if you have a pick up truck that makes it easier and less hassle.
