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

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.
