Jakarta. A group of private waste haulers and street sweepers said Monday they would seek redress from the Jakarta Provincial Legislative Council (DPRD) after the city terminated their contracts in favor of letting the capital handle its own sanitation and waste removal. "[The city] has inflicted losses on us with the termination of the contracts." The private companies were responsible for waste hauling, street sweeping and running dumps throughout the city, but the contracts was terminated in January across the board.
