A for me

'paper of all kinds' is correct, not 'all kinds of paper'
'paper' is singular

It's A.

(A) Because paper of all kinds is the biggest single component of municipal trash, many municipalities have tried recycling to reduce the cost of trash disposal.

Correct.
- Paper is singular so 'is' is required.
- 'have tried recycling' looks fine and makes sentence concise.

(B) Because paper of all kinds is the biggest single component in municipal trash, many municipalities tried to recycle so that the cost of trash disposal is reduced.

Incorrect.
- 'tried to recycle' is not || with 'disposal is reduced'.

(C) Because paper of all kinds are the biggest single components in municipal trash, many municipalities have tried to recycle to reduce the cost of trash disposal.

Incorrect.
- 'Paper' is singular so 'are' is not required.

(D) All kinds of paper are the biggest single components of municipal trash, and so many municipalities have tried recycling to reduce the cost of trash disposal.

Incorrect.
- Same as C.
- 'and so' does not seem proper.

(E) All kinds of paper is the biggest single component of municipal trash, so many municipalities have tried to recycle so that the cost of trash disposal could be reduced.

Incorrect.
- Wordy. 'could be reduced' is not correct.
