single bowl sink and garbage disposal?

Hooking up a disposal to a single bowl sink??
I can't decide -- what do you guys think??

I'm replacing my old double bowl sink with a single bowl (a 33" wide single bowl!). The guy who is replacing it for me said that it isn't a good idea to hook up a garbage disposal when you have a one bowl sink because you shouldn't dump things like chemicals (bleach, cleaning products, etc.) down the drain through the disposal because it's not good for the disposal. I'd never heard this before and not quite sure if I believe that or not!

Wha'dya think?

The better of most disposals are all stainlees steel inside, so those things will not hurt. I install disposals on single sinks all the time. But actually, I don't recommend a disposal at all. There is enough stuff going down the drain that does not belong there(and helps build clogs), you don't need to add garbage.

I'm inclined to agree! Maybe I'll just eliminate it altogether!
