The problem of space junk removal is becoming ever more seriuos and many solutions are being proposed. Scientists estimate there are nearly 30,000 items circling the Earth larger than 10cm in size. Some are whole satellites and rocket bodies, but many are just fragments. These have resulted from explosions in fuel tanks and batteries, and from the high-velocity impacts between objects. Upwards of 10cm is trackable with radar, but there are tens of thousands more pieces that are smaller and move unseen.
Solutions include special space garbage trucks so send in the space, and many others.
As this problem grows, there will be soon a need for a space junk hauler, certainly a profession of the future.
