Jack, Kate, Sawyer, and Hurley discovered the capsule dump when Michael led them to recover Walt.

The dump is the destination of all the capsules or items sent through the pneumatic tube located in the Pearl, including Locke's copy of the blast door map. The capsules contain logbooks written by the inhabitants of the Pearl. It appears that the capsules have not been recently collected or studied (or may never have been collected). This may be because no one was left to collect them following the Purge ("The Man Behind the Curtain") or because the real purpose of the Pearl was not to keep these logbooks. The goal of the experiment and the reasons for its long duration (evidenced by the number of capsules at the dump) have not been explained. ("Live Together, Die Alone") Because the capsules appear in piles, it could be concluded that there may be more stations that had similar pneumatic tubes leading to the same place, but the exits no longer remain. It could also be assumed that this was the only way the producers could get that many capsules to stay in one place and not roll down the hill.

Jack, Kate, Sawyer, Hurley, and Michael discovered the capsule dump while on their way to retrieve Walt from the Others. It was here that they were ambushed and taken prisoner by the Others.
