This paper adopted descriptive statistics tool of tables, figures and graphs to present the data. The educational level of respondents of Nearby Residents (NBR) ranges from 30.00 to 115.00 with total of 145 and Far Away Residents (FAR) are between 53.00 and 110.00 with total of 233.00. The disposal methods used by respondents’ ranges from 35.00 to 128.00 with percentage between 9.00 to 32.00 for NBR and 23.00 to 85.00 with 10.00% to 36.00% for FAR.
