The problem isn't chemical rockets, it's the single-use paradigm which throws waste into space and makes launch incredibly expensive.

Hopefully, SpaceX is paving the way for reusable launchers which will make launches less messy and make it cheap enough to put debris-recovery systems into orbit. Of course, they'll also make it easier to put more crap into orbit...
