One solution may be to put the ISS in a 1200 km orbit and thus above most of the debris that originates from decaying sats and debris in 500-1000 km orbits. The big drawback is that it would cost more per kilo to get payload up there but once construction is completed there shouldn't be the need to ship up so much stuff.
