Have you taken away each toy that he has thrown for at least a full day if not longer? The things that he throws that do not belong to him... does he have to go and get it and put it back where it belongs?

I also agree w/ what Shawnn said and would also add... if he's gone to time out more than once in a day for it perhaps you can change it up a little and say something along the lines of 'it looks like you are in a real throwing mood today. Let's go outside w/ something you CAN throw.' And then take him outside to throw balls at a target or something. Who knows? Maybe he'll grow up to be a professional pitcher. ;)

Have you tried consistent redirection, and consequences for not listening? It takes more than "Don't do that"...It takes you immediately removing the items from his hands and sayind "NO". And again, and again...and if it happens 3 times, he goes to time out. The minute it happens again...time out.
