Also asked, can you install a garbage disposal in any sink?
A garbage disposal can be installed in either a single kitchen sink or on one half of a double sink with a strainer basket in the drain of the second half of the sink. Installing a disposal on a single sink is a much simpler task, as you won't have to contend with the tie-in for the second sink.
