Home improvement can be a real challenge that leaves you with a pitfall of waste left behind. The outdated appliances, rotting hardwood etc, all those old junk should go some place. Thanks to new services that process the mess faster and make our work easier with the below mentioned steps:
1. Disposable bin rentals
2. Donate Materials
3. Hauling it away yourself
More details can be had from the Toronto waste removalsí blog article - Green Ways To Dispose Renovation Waste | Gorilla Bins

The town dump has been around for many years.

OP's points 1 & 3 essentially mean "refuse--> dump"

I'm a big advocate of re-purposing, but if it's really garbage, little can be done with it.

Old wood not rotten could be re-purposed for small garden projects or burned in a furnace for heat. Drywall pulverized is a good source of calcium/alkali to treat garden soil, as barn lime in stalls or in place of salt for icy sidewalks.

Appliances could be donated or sold to a scrap re-cycler-- steel and the copper in the motors fetch a pretty good price (~$0.15/lb)

Sorry, Robert, for the rude welcome to this forum, but we do tend to think critically around here
