AnswerClean quartz sand weighs 80-125 pounds per cubic foot depending on degree of compaction and moisture content. Usually folks figure sand at 100 pcf. There are 27 cubic feet in a cubic yard.

So to continue the answer the previous poster made...

Using the 100 pcf average weight for sand, and that there are 27 cubic feet in a yard, then 2 yards is equal to 54 cubic feet and at 100 pcf, the total weight is 5400 lbs, or 2.7 tons.

Sorry, but does PCF not stand for Pound per Cubic Foot? So one yard (at 27 cubic feet) weighs 2700 lbs. (which is 1.35 short tons, or 1.2 metric tons)
