    The Shuttle Remote Manipulator System (SRMS), also known as the Canadarm (Canadarm 1), is a mechanical arm that was used on the Space Shuttle orbiters to maneuver a payload from the payload bay of the orbiter to its deployment position and then release it. After the destruction of Space Shuttle Columbia during STS-107, NASA began to always pair the Canadarm with the Orbiter Boom Sensor System (OBSS), a boom containing instruments to inspect the exterior of the shuttle for damage to the thermal protection system.

    The Canadarm only works in weightless conditions.

    They don't have such waste on the ISS.
