Most types of greywater systems choke on plain kitchen sink water, let alone garbage disposal effluent. Branched Drain Grey Water Systems are about the only system I know of which could probably handle kitchen sink water with garbage disposal effluent, in favorable conditions. Under most conditions it would be better to compost.
