So at my office, everyone had been using the refrigerator responsibly and considerately for as long as I have been there. All of a sudden this year, at least one person has started storing raw meat in the fridge, sometimes in opened containers and sometimes, on the rack with no container at all, and sometimes even letting it go bad. The refrigerator now smells all of the time.
How can I institute rules for the workplace refrigerator, given that I am only a lowly employee (although everyone is, there is one owner/CEO about 50 or so employees with no middle management, so I want to keep this as democratic as possible)? Note there are two companies on the floor that share this fridge, so it would be difficult to form a meeting between both sets of employees.
