A Croxley man has pleaded not guilty to 11 criminal charges, including illegal waste dumping, defrauding creditors and false representation.
Robert McDonagh, 50, of Watford Road, Croxley Green, appeared at Birmingham Magistrates’ Court on Friday, April 21, where he denied any wrongdoing.
Mr McDonagh faces charges for carrying on the business of a company with intention to defraud creditors, or for other fraudulent purposes, with the offences allegedly taking place between June 1, 2015, and September 30, 2016.

He also faces a charge of false representation which is alleged to have taken place between August 25 and September 22, 2016, relating to alleged involvement in the securing of a lease of land in Staffordshire which was allegedly used for illegal depositing and storage of waste.
The other eight charges all concern alleged depositing or disposing of mixed commercial and household waste across Birmingham, Stoke-on-Trent and Staffordshire between March 2016 and September 2016.
Mr McDonagh is next due to appear at Birmingham Crown Court on Friday, May 19.
