The village is located on the left side of the Usora river, but the name Žarkovina refers to the area of approximate size on the opposite, right side of the river. The left side is the settlement (homes and yards) and the right side is industrial zone now. The right side is sometimes referred as Žarkovačka polja (Serbian Cyrillic: Жарковачка поља, literally: Žarkovina fields).

The industrial zone area was previously private agricultural fields, but today there are several factories built, as well as one shopping mall.
