Henryk Piotrowski, 43, had no family in Ireland and it is thought he may have been sleeping rough in the bin when it was emptied.
Staff emptied the bin on Friday morning when his body was found.
The bin's contents were crushed and compacted before it was emptied at the Ballymount Road facility in Walkinstown.
A senior garda source confirmed work was underway Interpol in a bid to contact the victim's relatives. "Gardaí are liaising with Interpol on the matter," he said.
"We are seeking his next of kin in Poland."
It is understood the victim was carrying identification papers when he was found with what gardaí have described as horrific injuries.
Gardaí are appealing for information on the last movements of Mr Piotrowski.
It is thought he was in the Dame Street area between 7pm and 10pm on Thursday 22 August and there were also sightings on the South Quays in the Wood Quay/Merchant's Quay area in the early hours of Friday.
If anyone has any information they should contact Crumlin Garda Station.
