Burwood is an inner-western suburb of metropolitan Sydney, situated twelve kilometres west of the CBD. Its neighbouring suburbs include Five Dock, Concord, Strathfield, Croydon, Canada Bay, Croydon Park, South Strathfield and Burwood Heights.
Burwood’s first house was built in 1814, and it was a staging post between Sydney and Parramatta before it became a municipality in 1874. Today, Burwood is a mix of commercial, residential, and light industrial precincts.
Burwood is governed by the local government of Burwood Council.
As well as regular weekly kerbside collection for rubbish removal in Burwood, Burwood Council is committed to environment and waste management as follows:
- Love Food Hate Waste assists households to minimise food waste by offering tips on shopping smarter and storing food more effectively.
- Compost Revolution. The average household waste bin in Burwood contains a majority of food organics and green waste. Rather than being disposed of in landfill, these can be better put to use for their nutrients and energy by composting them; Burwood Council encourages residents to compost and worm farm.

Everything unwanted from tool to furniture, clothing to glassware, baby items to books, electricals to bric-a-brac can be sold for reuse and to keep it out of landfill. This event is held numerous times throughout the year.
