kitchen wiring question

I know that code asks for 2 separate 20 amp circuits for countertop outlets but want to know
1- can i wire my above range microwave to one of those circuits and
2- can i share a dishwasher and a disposal on a separate, third new circuit, or do I need separate for the microwave, dishwasher and disposal?

1) No. If it is a fixed appliance it cannot be shared on the minimum two SA circuits.

2) DW and disp are quite commonly fed by a dedicated shared circuit. Make sure it is a 20 amp circuit.
