What would you do?

This is the refrigerator on my floor at work. It stinks! You can smell the refrigerator from the first floor; I'm on the second floor. 

Everyday I bring my lunch to work. I store my lunch in a cute lunchbox; which I place in the above refrigerator each morning. A month ago, I noticed my lunchbox was starting to stink. It stinks so bad, I've started washing it every weekend. 

So here's the thing, I'm tired of my lunchbox stinking! I'm tired of my work refrigerator stinking! It's gross!! At my old job, when the refrigerator smell would get bad, volunteers would clean out the refrigerator. It does not appear volunteers clean out this refrigerator. My question to you, do I start this tradition? Do I clean out the refrigerator?

Does no one else notice it? Maybe you could post a funny note on the fridge and solicit help or even a sign up on it for others to volunteer to keep it clean?

Oh yes others notice it too. Leaving a note is a good idea.

way back in the stone ages when I worked... ;)
we took turns cleaning the kitchen. It was rotated between departments...the cleaner was rotated within the department (some had to pay their secretary to be the official cleaner) There was a chart on the frig so no one could complain.
Every Friday all take out food containers were trashed. All plastic containers were put on the table to be taken home by their owner...if not picked up, those got trashed also (we were brutal!)
I don't remember anyone having to clean the actual frig (wiping it down or anything.)
Some baking soda might help remove the lingering smells.

Baking soda is a good idea!! Thanks.
