My question is how do i get the values from the DropDownList(S) in C# codebehind from the tables?

            <tr>
                <td colspan="3">

            </tr>
            <tr>
                <td style="width: 1px; height: 24px;">
                    <asp:DropDownList ID="DropDownList1" runat="server">
                    </asp:DropDownList></td>

You used the word "from" twice in your question, so it is dificult to understand what you need the data from.

Can you restate it?

I am going to assume you have populated the DisplayText AND the DisplayValue with a datasource so here you go:
//when user selects the dropdown and a postback event occurs...
         string selectedVal1 = DropDownList1.SelectedValue;
         string selectedVal2 = DropDownList2.SelectedValue;
