Lots of water changes will dilute it, but since you added such a large dose and left the sand in the tank, the sand absorbed lots of the copper and it will take time for it to leech back out and for the poly filters to absorb what leeches out.
You should take this as a lesson learned. There are no shortcuts to success.
