I pour it down the drain to melt any grease build up but, I have been told not to because the quick burst of heat expands the metal and may loosen the joints, causing leaks. I have never had a problem doing it though.

Schedule 40 and 80 PVC pipe is rated to 140F maximum service temperature. One way to bend these is heat it and gently bend. High heat can thus deform pipes.

I pour mine down the sink too...
