  1. I typically charge $70 for a replacement install. For a new install, labor may be as high as $175. Disposal and other materials are extra.

    • The garbage disposal under my kitchen sink has worn out and needs to be installed with a new one. I can pick up the new disposal, but need to have it installed.

      Thanks for quote on this project.
