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

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.
