Mulch Me, Maybe

Bronx WoodchipperFilter: we have a ~ 24ft x 12ft x 7ft mess of branches in our backyard after a massive clean-up. We thought the most efficient way to take care of it would be to use a wood chipper to turn it into mulch to spread across the backyard-- what's the best way to go about this?

1) Where's the cheapest place to rent a wood chipper in the Bronx if you don't have a car? Is my best option walking down to the Home Depot, or are there deals likely to be found on Craigslist / talking to my local hardware store or maybe any of the landscapers working on nearby lawns?
2) Is there a cheaper / better way to take care of all these gd branches? Bagging is probably out of the question since we couldn't end up w/ any mulch to spread around; plus, it'd take a loooooong time and we'd possibly end up spending more on black bags than on a wood chipper rental. Burning it all is also not an option
