(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.

(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. Seems like the processing was done in the past and in the present it has been stopped.

(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. Paper is singular
(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. Doesnt seem logical
(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.[/quote] Are should have been used.

You can eliminate D and E without worrying about that difference.

D -- "and so" is incorrect or at least wordy
E -- noun-verb agreement ("all kinds...are" not "all kind...is")

Nonetheless..."biggest single component" indicates singular.
"All kinds...are...the biggest single component" doesn't make any sense.
