The change in consumption habits of Dominicans has resulted in a scarcity of bottles, says the Cervecería Nacional Dominicana. The company says Dominicans became accustomed to drinking beer at home, which delays recycling the bottles. Likewise, the company says their bottle suppliers have delivered only 50% of the orders placed for new bottles.

On the old scary road from Bavaro to Uvero Alto there are at least 2 places that have millions of beer bottles. (Back in June).
I'm thinking they are exporting more or just creating another artificial shortage to jack the prices.

delays recycling the bottles ----- they recycle ?????
Yes , they recycle
Some make a job of collecting empties and selling them back

I understand the shortage now... home consumption
The bars/restaurants can't collect the empties for return
The truck delivers beer and removes the empties (in cases) from the retailer

I have seen it

and if you keep an eye out.... you'll see the telltale scuffing on the bottles from recycling.

Not much, but it is done.... re-use

I have a hard time believing it's a shortage of bottles. I too have a couple of recyclers I pass frequently and they take them out by the container loads.
