Default Keeping junk in boil kettle with a downspout

Hey all. I recently bought a keggle/HLT that has a 90° piece of copper tubing to get the last bits of water out of the bottom. I have yet to use it yet, but I was wonder how you keep from sucking out all of the crap at the bottom left over from a boil? Do you simply not collect the first pint or so, or do you filter, or?

I drop the entire contents of the BK through a sanitized stainless steel seive.
