Actually, black holes as small as you're describing would evaporate very quickly due to Hawking radiation. I suspect that any black hole up to the job of clearing out space debris would present serious dangers to the atmosphere, but I haven't done any calculations. Hand-waving justification: to effectively clear things, it would have to have enough mass to 'accelerate' (I know this term is incorrect from a strictly GR standpoint) objects toward it, in which case the tidal forces would be significant.

Real Users never know what they want, but they always know when your program doesn't deliver it.
