Where to get electricity for kitchen sink disposal?

I want to use a push button disposal switch to turn on/off the disposal. Inksinkerator makes a neat little button that you install flush on your counter that is wired to the disposal and then plugged directly into an electrical outlet.

My question is... Can I plug into the electrical outlet for the dishwasher? I have room. I just wanted to know if that would be a code violation since dishwashers are supposed to be on their own dedicated circuit.

Actually unless they have unusually high amp draws they can share a circuit.
