I'm in North Central Indiana -- Logansport -- and here we have an annual "Tire Amnesty Day" run by our city & county government. They take tires free, but it's limited to individuals, not businesses -- and if you truly have 1000 tires, I'm guessing it's some sort of a business! I would suggest you contact the closest recycling center and your local government offices and ask -- they truly do not want these tires to wind up in a riverbed or littering the countryside, so they may be willing to work with you. Thanks for taking the environmentally responsible approach!
If you have a large amount of tires, post them on your local craigslist, or yahoo freecycle groups.
I don't know about disposing of a thousand tires. I'm hoping it's an exaggeration. But....Our local Walmart will take old tires and only charges 60 cents a tire. Call and see if your Walmart does the same thing.
