The problem of waste is endless and has become a serious problem especially in big cities. With greater conditions and increased demand for waste collection on one side, and the limited land for waste management on the other, it requires the DKI Jakarta Government to cooperate with other areas in the vicinity. Therefore the Provincial Government of DKI Jakarta in cooperation with the City Government of Bekasi work together for waste management, the Provincial Government of DKI Jakarta bought land in the Bekasi City to be a Final Disposal Place, and over time turned into Integrated Waste Disposal Sites. In cooperation, there is a conflict between the Provincial Government of DKI Jakarta with the Bekasi City Government related to waste management, and conflict occurred in 2015 to 2016.

Purnama who seemed arrogant to the Bekasi DPRD made the conflict heated up. 3) DKI Jakarta Provincial Government feel the cause of all this because of the default done by a third party that is PT. Godang Tua Jaya. 4) Residents who feel disadvantaged starting to close the road to Bantar Gebang and ultimately the citizens shut Bantar Gebang in June 2017, the citizens reject self-managed Bantar Gebang because they are afraid of the future of waste management is not going well
