I have a GBC binder I bought quite a few years ago that works with up to about 250 pages, but not for a document as large as yours -- and the binder costs a few hundred $$.   I'd suggest for a document as large as yours you take it to a professional office store -- Knoxzoo suggested Kinko's, OfficeMax, or Staples;  I'd add The UPS stores to that list.

If you do want to do it yourself, you can buy a relatively inexpensive GBC "CombBind" machine (uses plastic comb binders) for as low as $128 that will bind 300 pages:   
... or a 200-page capacity VeloBind machine (binds with 4-pin spine strips) for $96:

I have an earlier version of the CombBind machine (mine's electric) and it works great.   ... but if you only bind an occasional document it's much more economical to just use The UPS store or FedEx/Kinko's.

Is there a Kinko's nearby?  OfficeMax?  Staples?
Try professional help as suggested above as it is very large.
