Size of disposal

Sorry, I would have appended this question to my previous thread about disposals, but I couldn't find it.

In the past, we always had the 1.0 HP disposal. However, now we compost almost everything and just use the disposal for sink scraps. Is 1.0 HP overkill and would 3/4 HP work fine for that purpose?

RE: Size of disposal

We have 3/4 HP. Our little composter (guinea pig) recently died, so I am using the disposal more :( It works fine for us, sounds like it will be enough for you.
