If it's still fresh and alive, just pour it in. Smell it 1st tho. You will know if it's fouled with dead/dying matter, and if it is, I would thoroughly rinse it with fresh water then pour it all in.

If all the worms and bits are still active....and it doesn't smell rotting, then I would just pour it in.

What else do you have in the tank? You won't want all the floating sand that will be suspended in the water to settle on your corals.
