Canete tasked with managing Super Bowl snow removal

September 17, 2013 -  By

Canete Snow Management of Wayne, N.J., was awarded a five-year contract to manage the snow removal at MetLife Stadium located in Secaucus, N.J., home to the New York Giants, New York Jets and the 2014 Super Bowl.

The contract requires 843 workers to remove all the snow from the inside of the stadium. The snow must be removed, said Tom Canete, owner of Canete, regardless of whether there is a game or not. To help ensure everybody is available to get to work, Canete has hired luxury buses to transport workers to and from the stadium and anybody who works the impending storms will also be provided with meals.

And besides the sheer numbers of workers needed to manage the stadium, the FBI must screen each applicant for past criminal history.

Canete, however, is taking it all in stride, flipping through the Farmer’s Almanac to see if snow is predicted to fall on game days, and paying special attention to February, when the Super Bowl is slated to be held at the stadium.

“I don’t know about you, but just the thought of being a part of Super Bowl history gives me chills,” Canete said. “Or maybe it’s the thought of all that snow. Either way it’s very exciting.”
