I hate to rain on anyone's parade, but releasing even r-134a refrigerant into atmosphere is still not acceptable. You should have this reclaimed from the system using a reclaimer and then vacuum the system down to 500microns before attempting to recharge. Just the fact that you have had this system recharged 3 times tells me that it is in need of service and that the shop you have taken it to has not done their job properly and repaired the leak. Get the leak fixed first and then recharge your system!
