Calling all determined DIY-ers—you, yes you, can in fact install your very own trash disposal. For anyone who have constantly dreamed to be able to throw your half-eaten food straight into your sink in place of switching your trash can as a foul-smelling mess, this tutorial is actually for you.

Then, you will need to figure out just what size trash disposal you’ll need.
“Garbage disposals come in numerous sizes: quarter horsepower, half horsepower and three quarter horsepower,” stated Louis Malvasi, owner of Lane Mechanical Plumbing, Heating, and Cooling Inc.
