A bin charge waiver operated by the Greyhound waste company in Dublin is due to expire today.
Around 50,000 households in the capital will now face new bin charges.
Greyhound Recycling and Recovery had agreed to waive charges for certain customers for 12 months, after it bought the business from local authorities last March.
Dublin Mid-West Fianna Fáil Councillor Trevor Gilligan is encouraging people to shop around to find the best deals on waste collection.
"There are a number of companies out there offering services in the south Dublin and Dublin city centre area," he said.
"I'd say to people go out and get the best deal you can."
