My impression is the size of the wipe/waste tower is dependent on how much the slicer thinks it needs to purge the previous filament when switching to the next filament. I've heard that there is a setting in PrusaSlicer to purge to infill so the purged plastic is actually used for something other than filling up waste/recycle bins. Try finding that setting to see if it helps. (I would assume that parts with less infill would benefit less from this setting, so as always YMMV.)
