When I was using hop sacks, I dumped them in a double blue plastic bag, tie off & take straight to the garbage can. I don't want the dog or cat getting poisoned from them. But using them loose in the boil now, I dump the gunk in the bottom of the kettle in the head & flush.

I clip a straining back inside of the bucket (like a trash bag in a trash can) and pour all of my chilled wort in (trub and all). Then I use the straining back to pull out all of the gunk and squeeze every last bit of delicious wort out of it before the remainder goes in the trash (we've got a very curious/hungry/stupid dog that eats pretty much everything).
