Swiss Working on Satellite to Remove Space Litter
Meet CleanSpaceOne, a proposed project of the Swiss Space Center. It is being designed to find and collect stray orbital debris using a biologically-inspired claw system that is currently in design (it could be equal parts carnival game and sea anemone in the end). After maneuvering itself up to its target, it grabs it, stabilizes itself according to the new center of gravity, and descends back down into the atmosphere to burn up the trash on re-entry.
Unsure why space junk is such a dangerous problem? Then you need to watch this video.

So the giant void of nothing can have more nothing in it
