Hello and welcome to Just Answer. My name is ***** ***** I will be happy to assist you with your electrical question.

1) Does the cabinet area under the sink already contain an existing duplex receptacle? If so, is 1/2 of the receptacle switched and the other receptacle 1/2 is always "live"?

2) Does the sink area also contain a cord & plug connected garbage disposal?
