Eventually they will have to. Surely there'll become a problem abandoned, old satellites etc are a danger to other things in orbit. I remember reading a few years ago that there is already quite a bit of abandoned junk in orbit. I guess it isn't easy to have a "clean up the earth's orbit day"

Space is big yes, but that doesn't mean we can chuck any old thing into it.
