You can also scoop rinsed sand into a ziploc bag, squeeze the air out, and zip up the bag. Then submerse the bag, zipper side down, and open it up over the spot you want to dump. I just did this myself a few days ago. You still end up with a bit of a dust storm, but it dissipates after a couple hours.

As long as you're not reusing old sand, you won't encounter any ammonia spikes.
