Question

garbage disposal sharing circuit


i was wondering if i can share a 20A circuit between the garbage disposal and a bathroom power outlet. i know that it is recommended that a garbage disposal be on its own dedicated circuit.

thanks

bath has to be independant. In Canada disposal can be paired with dishwasher. Not sure about the US.

Bath does not have to be independent in Canada. Bath can be mixed with other circuits.

I'm not sure why you'd want to do that in the first place. The minute someone plugs in a hairdryer you are already pushing a 15 amp circuit. Even on a 20 amp circuit you don't have enough overhead for a something like a garbage disposal. I simply wouldn't do it from a convenience factor of not tripping a breaker.
