garbage disposal traps


There is a strong odor coming from our garbage disposal. There is a trap just coming out of the disposal and another for the double sink that sits just a little lower than the first. Are there supposed to be two traps? Is it gas coming back up out of the drain?

There should be one trap coming out of the garbage disposal.
