Generous supporters and members of Ottery Dogs have stumped up the cash for bins in Brook Street and fouling hotspot Higher Ridgeway.
The award-winning group's battle against irresponsible dog-owners continues with spokeswoman Mel Turner hailing its "poo hotline" a success.
She said: "Over the last couple of months four fines have been issued to habitual foulers (by East Devon District Council), with a fifth one pending, this has been entirely down to the sharing of intelligence between our members, the local authority and the police.

"We're having lots of enquiries from people throughout the UK asking for advice on how we have achieved this. I am currently working groups from Torbay, Clevellys (in Lancashire), Westward Ho and Honiton."
An Ottery Devon County Council candidate, William Laitinen, has recently pledged his support to the group.
