Tips on dealing with dirty and careless people at the office ?

How do I get my 'professional' co-workers to stop leaving food in the refrigerator for months? And how, in general, prevent them from being so careless?

I am the office coordinator/receptionist... which translates into 'receiving complaints about the office'.
Our office has about 35-40 people in the office. Mostly male engineers.
We have one fridge in the kitchen (which I don't use and now cannot see how other people can use it) and currently I am receiving a lot of complaints about how the fridge smells horrible and there's food in there from several months ago.
A former employee got sick of it and cleaned it out but within a month there was already expired food.
Other issues people complain about are people leaving dirty dishes in the sink, spilling/dropping stuff and not picking it up, rifiling through the supply cabinets and dropping bins of supplies and leaving them on the floor, etc.
Anyone have any tips on controlling filthy people who think their wives are magically going to clean up after them here at work?
I mean, I know it can't be totally controlled... but just wondering if anyone had any tips or ideas.
