There's a procedure you can try in Adobe reader or Foxit that can be used to convert scans from double pages to single... it's a bit empirical, so the results are not 100% guaranteed, but for the most part works

It's actually easier to show with a simple animation than to explain in words, so have a look at this (Foxit Reader, but similar in Adobe too):
GIF - Convert PDF from double page to single page

and this is the resulting pdf:
