1. If our reporters find people throw away garbage, they will report them on TV.
2. If our reporters find people throwing away garbage, they will report them on TV.
(Which one is correct, #1 or #2? Do we have to use 'find' or 'finding'? Are both OK?)

Your second sentence is correct.
You should only use "find" in this sentence.
Do I have to use 'throw' or 'throwing'?
Is #1 not correct?
#2 is correct.
You could make #1 correct by adding "who" = If our reporters find people who throw, etc.
