A group of city councillors are calling on local authority chiefs to consider increasing the Property Tax to pay for waste services.
At the moment homeowners in the Dublin City Council region are paying 85% of the tax on the value of a property.
It's after representatives voted in favour of a 15% cut so that households didn't have to pay the full charge this year.
Now it's proposed the tax be levied at the full 100% in 2018.
However Independent Councillor Nial Ring says the 12 million euro it would generate should be spent on the local authority taking back the control of waste services including all bin collection.
It follows controversial moves by private waste companies to raise their fees and the rise of illegal dumping across Dublin.
The city manager says a meeting is scheduled to discuss raising the Local Property Tax and a report will be compiled on the issue.
