Yes, you can. Or at least I've been able to reuse mine in the past. I believe it was $0.50 off for the big cup and $0.25 for the small cup.
The Pick-a-Brick cups are made from polypropylene, as evidenced by the #5 resin identification code on the bottom. Polypropylene is widely considered a safe plastic for storing food and drink, and it is stable at very high temperatures (i.e., temperatures higher than your dishwasher).
