Kitchen Drain Line Location an Issue with Disposal??

I am in the process of re-doing my kitchen and have a few friends helping, but ran into a potential issue that I hope someone can clarify. In the picture below you will see blue tape over a PVC drain line coming from behind the wall and then a wide piece of blue tape covering up the water lines right now.

The potential issue is that where the drain pipe is currently coming out of the wall is exactly where the drain will be in the 1 undermount sink I will have. I know the disposal attaches to the sink drain, and then usually to the side a pvc pipe is run to connect to the drain pipe. In this case though the drain pipe is right under where the disposal will be placed. How can I make this work?

You would put a 45 ell at the wall and run the second basin to that. The GD would run to the tailpipe of that sink.

Im not sure if youre understanding my situation, where the drain pipe right now is..will be where the sink drain itself will be. There wont be another basin.

It is just one 32" under mount sink with the sink drain in the middle. Right below is the drain pipe you see sticking out of the wall and I need to make sure a disposal is connected. Most of the pictures I see it appears the drain pipe is to the side of the disposal. Thats why im confused.

Then no problem, the ell that comes with the disposer can go directly into the P-trap.

You can still use a 45 off the wall, to get the trap a bit offset. The output of the disposal will be off to the side. You will be able to swing the p trap at an angle to make the connection. (I don't have the neat pictures like Ray does)

Here is what Zorfdt was referring to. You may need to do this if it is too close to the wall for the trap.

Thanks Ray that makes sense to put a 45 on to the end of the drain pipe to offset it and then run the trap. That picture now helps me visualize it, I just have to reverse the position since my water pipes are in the way. Thanks again!!
