Hi Joe,

This picture shows the home owner's wiring job to his replacement garbage disposal, or as you said "waste food disposal." Wired with 14/2 no ground, paralleled into a twenty (20) ampere circuit on a twenty (20) ampere circuit breaker and no Romex connector.

This is exactly the reason I am a fan of cord and plug connected disposals and dish washers. Clem the delivery truck driver/installer may not do a much better job as part of the “professional installation” offered by appliance warehouse operations.
