It could have been A, were it not for the comma and for the order of words.

More paper than ever is expected to be recycled this year... is acceptable, at least I hope so.

I vote for D.
A doesn't make sense in the order of words and the comma.

While A is not "technically" wrong grammatically, the problem is that there is an ambiguity over whether "more than ever" refers to "expected" or "recycled". Consider two rephasings of the sentence:

(1) Paper is expected, more than ever, to be recycled this year, due to new mandatory recycling laws in municipalities across the nation.

(2) More paper is expected to be recycled this year than ever, due to new mandatory recycling laws in municipalities across the nation.



(1) implies an increased "expectation" that paper will be recycled (as opposed to it not?). This seem to be an unlikely intention of the author compared to (2):

(2) seems to be a more reasonable interpretation of the author's intent being that there is always some paper being recycled no matter what. Unfortunately, that is not what he says, so (A) is not a good choice.

D seems to best convey the intention of (2) so I would go with it.
