final choice between D and E...(A, B and C out because 'amount of paper' makes more sense)

going with E. it is more concise.

Picking D.
E tends to change the meaning slightly.
"A great increase" should have been "greater than ever".

ALways choose "greater than ever" over "more than ever."

(D), Dead set.

Agree with the rest ... D seems like the best answer

D

Its the amount of paper that is greater than ever. A,B and C are out.

D is better than E in that it uses the idiom preffered in GMAT.

Idiom + Redundancy
A fails to convey the correct meaning.
B is redundant.
C is wrong as it uses ‘paper’ rather than ‘amount of paper’.
E is awkward and changes meaning.
D is the best choice.

This problem is flawed refer discussion at :
more-than-ever-paper-is-expected-to-be-recycled-this-year-47746.html?fl=similar

I selected E, because due to modifies only nouns not entire clauses.
