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.
