Creative garbage disposal wiring

garbage disposal

This home has a garbage disposal installed.  The problem was that I could not find the switch to turn the disposal on.

After a few minutes of searching, I looked at the disposal to trace the electrical cord.  To my surprise, it did not go to an outlet. Instead it went up to the sink.

The disposal switch consists of pulling the garbage disposal cord up thru a hole in the sink and plugging it into the nearby electrical outlet
