    Idk about pricing but I would just dump them all in a pile to rebag. A broom on a skid steer would probably help putting all the sand into a pile.

    Uline has bags, idk pricing on them just an observation

    Can you double stack those pallets? I know when I worked at the lumber yard it was just pure laziness that led to big messes like that, with shingles in our case. And with shingles being my area it fell on me to make it right. This is a very different business to me and I look forward to more updates.

    Just spitballing here but they wanted a per bag price to reorganize right? Have you arrived at a per bag price to make and sell? Subtraxt the price of material from that price and you should have a close number. Just as much if not more handling going on but the hard part is done, the sand is in the bags. Half of the pallets look like the top few layers just need reorganizing.
