WCF : Is it possible to pass "anything" as a method argument

I need to have a WCF service with a single method that must accept anything as an argument (type Object).
On the service side I want to use reflection to get the object properties, attributes and type name.
Is there a way of doing this?

Currently I'm using a wrapper object that inspects the object and what goes through the wire is the typed wrapper object...
It works great despite the fact that this wrapper object must be on a common assembly of both service and site.
I would like not to have this dependency, I would prefer just to reference the service and call its method.
